A handcrafted beauty ideal for flamenco and world music.

The cajon is a truly amazing instrument. Ostensibly a wooden box, the cajon is much more, providing many striking areas and "sweet spots" and a range of tones from snappy highs to resonant lows. When constructed meticulously and placed in the hands of a capable percussionist, the cajon can open up a variety of pitches and timbres, complementing flamenco and various Latin genres.

The LP Cajon by Mario Cortes is constructed from specially selected birch pieces. Birch is a wood admirably suited to cajons owing to its emphasis on clean highs and natural low end, both obtainable without excessive player effort. Instruments constructed of Finnish birch are often termed "naturally EQ-ed" and this attribute of the Mario Cortes Cajon will surely augment LP's reputation as manufacturer of the most recorded cajons in the history of flamenco, fusion, and world music.

Handmade in Spain and individually tested, the LP Cajon by Mario Cortes features a construction system so unique it is patented. All joints are dove-tailed rather than simply butted. Internal wire snare strands add high end sizzle to the conga-like highs and lows emitted by this premium instrument.

Designed by Mario Cortes, renowned flamenco guitarist and instrument maker, the LP Cajon by Mario Cortes is a natural fit in all flamenco inspired and world music ensembles. It speaks in rich tones, with the right balance of attack and resonance and, thus, is bound to be a highly sought after instrument.

Amazing Sounding Cajon

By silent_tofu

from SLO, CA

Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

This is the best cajon I've heard/played. I've played about 4 or 5 other Meinl cajons (some of the more pricey ones too) and this one blows them out of the water. The snaps are clean and crisp and the bass is full and deep. The overtones are perfect and not-distracting at all, fully complementing the overall sound of the instrument. Looks great and has tons of volume.

Comments about LP Mario Cortes Cajon:

This cajon, in my opinion, is a good sounding drum. Great snare noise, good bass. I would highly recomend this cajon to anyone. It is worth the money. A useful tool for playing acoustic gigs.
